On 18-19 January 2018 the FAB communication experts met at the 2nd Inter-FAB Communication Workshop held in Warsaw, Poland. The event is as a platform for sharing communication-related best practices and discussing objectives of FABS, their challenges and opportunities. Representatives of six (6) FABs (Baltic FAB, FABEC, FABCE, BLUE MED, Danube FAB, Danish-Swedish FAB) were present at the workshop.
Issues tackled during the workshop were among others: The special report of the European Court of Auditors on Single European Sky; regulatory perspective of State Authorities concerning FABs past and future InterFAB events (Performance Workshop in Sofia, Air Traffic Volatility Workshop in Warsaw, World ATM Congress in Madrid) and Social Dialogue at the FAB-level.
Functional airspace blocks (FABs) constitute one of the cornerstones of the Single European Sky legislation and policy. They were established already in 2012, however, many of the achievements and benefits of FABs often remain known to small groups only. Thus, the InterFAB communication aims at improving awareness of FABs EU-wide.
